Dontnod entertainment, the studio that developed Life is Strange, revealed last Friday, June 8th Twin Mirror. The studio has also recently released Vampyr thus bringing a new turn to the studios’ usually bright techniques.
Twin Mirrors is a psychological thriller game following the life of 33-year-old journalist, Sam. The trailer shows Sam returning to his home-town, Basswood, for his best-friends funeral. On the very next scene, we see him waking up, and heading to the bathroom, where he sees a bloody shirt and realises that it’s his own. Thus begins an investigation to find the truth about what happened.

The announcement by Dontnod entertainment said:
Twin Mirror offers the ability to dive into Samuel’s painful memories to personally and uniquelly shape the investigation through a series of gut-wrenchingly impactful choices, each bringing the player one step closer to discovering both the truth, and their place in the world.
The game is a journey that explores choices that the player may have, but it’s also a race against the clock! Bandai Namco, who’s working with Dontnod, stated on the PlayStation Blog :
Twin Mirror is a compelling journey that explores the elements of choice and hypocrisy, while paving a player’s way toward the conclusion of their investigation. […] Truth, duality, and polarity will become factors as players dictate their future through personal choices, while investigating the town the protagonist calls home.
In contrast with Life is Strange, both Vampyr and Twin Mirror seem to have taken a turn for a darker side. Gone are the pretty blue butterflies and colorful scenes we were used to with Life is Strange.
